Today Reception class had a Gruffalo party to celebrate all the work they have been doing on ‘The Gruffalo’ story by Julia Donaldson. The children prepared last week by sending invitations, making decorations and writing shopping lists for Miss Doherty. Today they helped count out the party food to make sure we had enough for everyone, they made Gruffalo crumble and played some party games. Just as they were settling down to watch ‘The Gruffalo’ DVD there was a loud knock at the door, it was a special visitor – The GRUFFALO! We told him all about what we had been doing, he seemed very impressed and enjoyed watching the DVD with us. What a fun morning!
